1990s when benjamin netanyahu was first prime minister, his own cia director threatened to resign and they may know things that we don't know. again, i'm not saying i'm against commuting a sentence, i just think there's some things we don't know about what in fact he did. >> you're right. but it's 12 more years that he's served. >> yes. >> by the way, the way clinton handled those things was not the best part of his presidency. thank you, robert wexler and peter, who improves his image with me every day. we'll be back after this.
